Mr Shapurji Saklatvala

Former MP for Battersea North

There are currently votes on relevant topics that are not included in the summaries below. We are working on bringing these records up to date over the next few months.

As a result of COVID-19, some MPs were less able to vote in Parliament in certain periods, and this will be reflected by absences in their voting record.

Show more detail
11th May to 2nd June 2020

All MPs could vote remotely through an online voting tool. Votes cast remotely are shown as normal on the TheyWorkForYou voting record.

2nd to 9th June 2020

The option of online voting was removed, and a number of MPs may have been unable to vote because they were not physically able to attend.

10th June 2020 onwards

The requirements on proxy voting were relaxed, allowing MPs to designate another MP to cast a vote on their behalf.

If an MP votes by proxy, it is effectively exactly the same as if they cast the vote in person and it shows up on their TheyWorkForYou voting record.

MPs are not required to designate a proxy, and may instead pair with an opposing MP to miss a vote. Parliament does not record when two MPs have come to a pairing arrangement, so on TheyWorkForYou, they will both appear to have been absent for the vote.

We will update this information if the situation changes. See more detail on votes during the COVID-19 period here.

    32. asked the Minister of Transport what has been the total expenditure during the last three years for which figures are available on the construction of new roads or on the widening and extension of old roads; how much of this expenditure was incurred in paying for property acquired for them; how much was incurred on payment of wages; and how much on purchase of materials?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Roads (Expenditure). 9 May 1929

    In view of the fact that great schemes are projected for the benefit of labour, is it not highly necessary that the figures should be classified to show how much of the road relief fund goes to landlords?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — India (Arrests). 9 May 1929

    Will the Under-Secretary tell us if it is not the case that some of the charges relate to events which took place about four months before the arrests were made, and was there not enough time to collect all the evidence before those arrests were made?
